"Let your best chefs represent your business or organization. Individuals are also encouraged to compete," said Tracy Leighton, event coordinator.
"May the best man, woman or team win. Entry fee is only $60 or $30 for non-profits. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your organization or business at the Pig on the Pond.".
"Let your friends, colleagues and family members be the judges," she added. "Red hot and spicy, lean and mean, Texas style or vegetarian; Pig on the Pond wants you to savor the flavor at the 17th Annual Pig on the Pond event."
